I highly recommend staying at Mawimbi - the room was perfect , the staff was great and accommodating - my only regret is that we did not stay longer..... Clean rooms, nice bar and restaurant - the beach was clean and comfortable. If you go to Holbox stay there - you will not be disappointed!!!

We had a wonderful stay here at Hotel Mawimbi! The hotel is beautifully built. Our room was very nice and clean and we felt well all the time. It was exact as pictured on the website. As we arrived, we were very friendly welcomed at the reception and got a welcome drink at the bar. So our vacation started immediately.... More

Great experience at mawimbi. Whenever I comeback to holbox I'm staying here again. When we arrived to our room their was a small bouquet of flowers for my girlfriends birthday. All the detail on the decore around the property was on point. All the staff was polite and helpful for whatever we needed. The location is great less than 10... More

I went here in August, and I can say the food, the staff attention and the hotel is simply the best. We also took the whale sharks too, It's expensive but totally worth it. We would definetely come back as soon as we can.

You will never find a more relaxed and wonderful hotel. The staff was super welcoming and went out of their way to accommodate us. We walked out of our room right to the beach. It really doesn't get much better than that. You'll find that Holbox is a very special place and the Hotel Mawimbi is a dream hotel at... More

Mawimbi was amazing - I wish we could have stayed longer! We spent 3 nights as a group of friends and loved everything about it. Top reasons: - Absolute beachfront with plenty of sun loungers to choose from (comfortable ones too!) - Great section of the beach with no boats blocking your access to the sea. Some hotels are in...

Hotel Mawimbi could not be more perfect and this is in great part to the care the two owners bestow onto the property. It is someplace that you just want to linger for its beauty. The Whale Shark tour is more expensive than other operators on the island and worth every last cent. The boat is state of the art,... More

The hotel is wonderful. It is very peaceful and laid back, just perfect for relaxing. The wait staff all knew our names and the rooms that we were in. We could place an order while we were lounging in a beach chair or beach bed and they would either bring what we ordered to us (drinks) or come and let... More
